Cumulus - a Ben Shereshaw 1937 design

Some details and photos of my latest build, Ben Shereshaw’s 1937 design, the Cumulus.

Covered in polyspan - any colour as long as its white - with red modelling tissue for trim. Two coats of 50/50 nitrate dope/thinners

Essentials stats are - Span 96” and a finished weight of 4 lbs 12 ozs giving a wing loading of 10 ozs/sq ft

Power is an Emax brushless motor BL2820/07 which gives about 500W on the 3300 3S Lipo battery.

Maiden flight video here - Mick Butler's Cumulus also features. Mick's videos of vintage models are well worth watching.

Maiden Flight Of Johns Cumulus (7 min 0 sec)

Some static photos showing the Cumulus and its colour scheme off nicely. I appear in one to lend scale to the size of the model. Mick's Cumulus also features. The flying photos are stills from Mick's video
